Girl's Giving: Clothes for Clothes

A shopping spree! A clothing drive! Porque no los dos? That's right! We're combining the excitement of shopping with the good work of donating clothes for our next Women's Ministry event!

If you donated clothing, you will get two tickets, which can be used to "buy" any two items of clothing. If you didn't donate clothing, you will be given one ticket. Take your time and browse through the clothes while enjoying some light refreshments. The upstairs rooms will be available as dressing rooms to try on clothes. All of the leftover clothing will be donated to organization Women Giving Back. 

Join us for any or for all! Be sure to invite friends, roommates, sisters, RAs, all women are welcome!
